NAME

drmaa_init, drmaa_exit - Start/finish Sun Grid Engine DRMAA session

 

SYNOPSIS

#include drmaa.h

int drmaa_init(
const char *contact, char *error_diagnosis, size_t error_diag_len
);

int drmaa_exit(
char *error_diagnosis, size_t error_diag_len
);

 

DESCRIPTION

 

drmaa_init()

The drmaa_init() function initializes the Sun Grid Engine DRMAA API library for all threads of the process and creates a new DRMAA session. This routine must be called once before any other DRMAA call, except for and Except for the above listed functions, no DRMAA functions may be called before the drmaa_init() function completes. Any DRMAA function which is called before the drmaa_init() function completes will return a DRMAA_ERRNO_NO_ACTIVE_SESSION error. Contact is an implementation dependent string which may be used to specify which Sun Grid Engine cell to use. If contact is NULL, the default Sun Grid Engine cell will be used. In the 1.0 implementation contact may have the following value: session=<session_id>. To determine the session_id, the function should be called after the session has already been initialized. By passing the session=<session_id> string to the drmaa_init() function, instead of creating a new session, DRMAA will attempt to reconnect to the session indicated by the session_id. The result of reconnecting to a previous session is that all jobs previously submitted in that session that are still running will be available in the DRMAA session. Note, however, that jobs which ended before the call to drmaa_init() may not be available or may have no associated exit information or resource usage data.

 

drmaa_exit()

The drmaa_exit() function closes the DRMAA session for all threads and must be called before process termination. The drmaa_exit() function may be called only once by a single thread in the process and may only be called after the drmaa_init() function has completed. Any DRMAA function, other than which is called after the drmaa_exit() function completes will return a DRMAA_ERRNO_NO_ACTIVE_SESSION error.

The drmaa_exit() function does necessary clean up of the DRMAA session state, including unregistering from the If the drmaa_exit() function is not called, the qmaster will store events for the DRMAA client until the connection times out, causing extra work for the qmaster and consuming system resources.

Submitted jobs are not affected by the drmaa_exit() function.

 

ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES

SGE_ROOT
Specifies the location of the Sun Grid Engine standard configuration files.
SGE_CELL
If set, specifies the default Sun Grid Engine cell to be used. To address a Sun Grid Engine cell Sun Grid Engine uses (in the order of precedence):

The name of the cell specified in the environment variable SGE_CELL, if it is set.

The name of the default cell, i.e. default.

SGE_DEBUG_LEVEL
If set, specifies that debug information should be written to stderr. In addition the level of detail in which debug information is generated is defined.
SGE_QMASTER_PORT
If set, specifies the tcp port on which the sge_qmaster is expected to listen for communication requests. Most installations will use a services map entry instead to define that port.
 

RETURN VALUES

Upon successful completion, drmaa_init() and drmaa_exit() return DRMAA_ERRNO_SUCCESS. Other values indicate an error. Up to error_diag_len characters of error related diagnosis information is then provided in the buffer error_diagnosis.

 

ERRORS

The drmaa_init() and drmaa_exit() functions will fail if:  

DRMAA_ERRNO_INTERNAL_ERROR

Unexpected or internal DRMAA error, like system call failure, etc.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_DRM_COMMUNICATION_FAILURE

Could not contact DRM system for this request.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_AUTH_FAILURE

The specified request is not processed successfully due to authorization failure.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_INVALID_ARGUMENT

The input value for an argument is invalid.

The drmaa_init() will fail if:  

DRMAA_ERRNO_INVALID_CONTACT_STRING

Initialization failed due to invalid contact string.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_DEFAULT_CONTACT_STRING_ERROR

Could not use the default contact string to connect to DRM system.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_DRMS_INIT_FAILED

Initialization failed due to failure to init DRM system.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_ALREADY_ACTIVE_SESSION

Initialization failed due to existing DRMAA session.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_NO_MEMORY

Failed allocating memory.

The drmaa_exit() will fail if:  

DRMAA_ERRNO_NO_ACTIVE_SESSION

Failed because there is no active session.  

DRMAA_ERRNO_DRMS_EXIT_ERROR

DRM system disengagement failed.
